In an interview done on set and published in Starlog 109 (cover date August 1986), Melanie Griffith reveals that she was pregnant with her first child when she tested for this movie. She was hired with a clause in her contract that if she did not have the baby by September 9, her role would be recast. Her son Alexander (with her then husband Steven Bauer) was born August 22, 1985, and Griffith started the film three weeks later, taking the boy along to the set each day to breastfeed him.

In the water tunnel as "E" is beginning to exit the car, she says to Sam, "We're going to have to hoof it from here." The camera shot changes to a wide shot, showing "E" starting to rappel down the tunnel out of the car. There is a crewman plainly visible (in HD) on the right side of the tunnel, possibly holding a boom mic. See more »
Curious futuristic sci-fi offering has a sexy performance from Griffith and likable work by Thomerson, plus an intriguing high concept premise. It doesn't totally come off, but there's definitely some interesting stuff going on amidst the flaws. Scifi movies about the future often don't date well and this one is no different, but it's not without its charms.
Some action sequences are jarring and out of place; perhaps they should have concentrated more on romancing the two leads, who have nice chemistry. This is grade-c stuff, but somehow whenever I see it on the tube I pause for a while and check it out. Despite flopping when released, this movie has taken on a formidable cult status since. Might be worth a look, especially if you enjoy post-apocalyptic stories like ROAD WARRIOR or WATERWORLD.
